Great place in Geneva to get a taste of Lyon. Their pate selections are great. If you have a large group they do a great chateaubriand that can be shared with a group and plated for each person.

We ate our last dinner after being gone for a month here and had our concierge make reservations well ahead of time as it has been highly recommended to us and we heard that reservations were hard to come by. I gave it a "very good" because it was and it was an especially good place for people watching and... More

This unassuming bistro just a few blocks from Lake Geneva (Leman) and the Ibis Styles Geneva Gare is an oasis of wonderful food. The serrvice was exceptional and helpful. The menu was sufficiently diverse to offer something for everyone. The wine list was excellent with French, Suisse and Italian offerings. We had the Filet prepared with Pastis Sauce. Loved it...

However very sound Grandma style cooking in an unrivalled Lyonesque setting in Geneva, tables though are a tad too close but heck that's part of the unique atmosphere of the place.

With the "Belle Epoque" ambiance and traditional delicious french cuisine along with a great choice of wine make feel tremendously good! Our favorite is the broiling nice juicy steak where it spatters and hisses and crusts up in all the right places is wonderful.The staff is just accommodating and nice. The owners makes feel a friend. Highly recommended.

Typical Brasserie with great selection of well prepared french dishes. Feels like home cooking. Had a very good Boudin noir and my wife had a Paillard de veau. The vegeas were very fresh and delicious. Meat was perfect. My desert was a home made Flan Caramel

This a wonderful small restaurant with a very inventive chef and attentive staff. Reservations at 7 pm opening were easy to acquire and the restaurant is a easy walk from central Geneva. Three of our party had difficulty of beef while I had a veal steak. We started with a rustic pork terrine and toast that was delicious and everyone... More

My husband and I ate here in September 2016. A small restaurant with attentive staff and a very friendly and 'buzzy' atmosphere. Tables close together but not too annoyingly so. Food was good, my sirloin was perhaps a little tough but a good flavour and the prices were good when compared with other restaurants in Geneva. A very good choice... More

Searched for the best restaurant in Geneva on our last night and this restaurant turned out to be the one. It surely lived up to its name. We didn't make a reservation but luckily there was still one table left vacant. The maître d'hôtel was very accommodating and he ensured that we got everything we need. The other staff were... More
